PURPOSE Polymorphisms in DNA repair genes can influence response to radiotherapy. We analyzed single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in nine DNA repair genes in 108 patients with head-and-neck cancer (HNSCC) who had received radiotherapy only. METHODS AND MATERIALS From May 1993 to December 2004, patients with Stage I and II histopathologically confirmed(More)
Fifty-four cases of Achromobacter xylosoxidans bacteremia diagnosed over a 10-year period in patients from 2 months to 87 years of age were reviewed. Fifty-two episodes were nosocomial. The most frequent underlying condition was neoplasm (solid or hematological). The source of infection was a contaminated intravenous catheter in 35 patients (60%) and(More)
Abstract The axillopectoral muscle, usually called Langer’s axillary arch instead of Langer’s arm arch, is a supernumerary muscle and is the principal anatomic variation of the axilla. Three cases of the muscle were observed originating from latissimus dorsi crossing over the axillary neurovascular bundle and inserting deep to the insertion of pectoralis(More)
BACKGROUND Although posterior thigh muscle strains are common in athletes, there are no reports regarding isolated gracilis muscle injuries. The authors present a case series of 7 elite athletes with isolated gracilis muscle ruptures. PURPOSE To present the injury pattern, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and outcome of gracilis muscle ruptures. STUDY(More)
In the dissection of 60 knees of 30 cadavers (13 women and 17 men), a ligament was located in the posterior femur face above the lateral or medial condyle. This ligamentous structure was found in 12 (20%) out of 60 knees studied (38% of the women and 35% of the men). It had a vertical arrangement and a constant direct relation to the superior (lateral or(More)
Sonography of the iliopsoas tendon plays an important role in the diagnosis and preoperative and postoperative management for the increasing number of patients under consideration for arthroscopically guided hip interventions such as iliopsoas tenotomy in a variety of conditions, including arthropathy, periarticular calcifications, and cam-type deformities(More)
Thoracoscopic bilateral sympathicolysis of the T3 sympathetic ganglia is an effective treatment for palmar hyperhidrosis, though not without potential complications and consequences such as Horner’s syndrome. The objective of our study is to evaluate the repercussion of T3 sympathetic denervation on pupillary tone in patients with primary hyperhidrosis. A(More)
Shoulder pathologies of the rotator cuff of the shoulder are common in clinical practice. The focus of this pictorial essay is to discuss the anatomical details of the rotator interval of the shoulder, correlate the anatomy with normal ultrasound images and present selected pathologies. We focus on the imaging of the rotator interval that is actually the(More)
